Fife pair Dianne Watson and Kathleen Cassels came out on top in the second Regional Qualifier for this year’s Revive Active Scottish Women’s Regional Medal finals.
Scottish Golf’s most popular women’s competition is being energised with new title sponsorship for the next three years, thanks to an exciting partnership with the leading health foods brand.
The Irish-based company are backing the nationwide event open to all female club members in Scotland, with Kirkcaldy GC staging the second qualifier in the East today as over 100 women competed.
Watson, from Leven Golfing Society, sealed her spot in the Grand Final at Crieff on Sunday 16 July after a fine one-under-par round of 71 in the Silver class, edging out Carmen Griffiths (Aboyne) by a shot. Sharon Lynch from Haddington was third to also qualify for the final.
In the bronze category, Cassels (pictured top) was triumphant as the Crail Golfing Society player carded a two-over-par 74 to beat Ladybank’s Anne Anderson by virtue of better inward half. The duo will be joined at the Crieff final by Megan Kane from Bonnybridge who finished third.
